Insiders Say Couric Is Considering Move to ABC

Apr 25, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Katie Couric is considering jumping to ABC after her “CBS Evening News” contract expires in the next couple of weeks, Bloomberg reports.

The 54-year-old anchor is expected to announce later this week that she is leaving “Evening News.” The insiders say she still has not made a final decision what she will do, according to the report. Scott Pelley of “60 Minutes” is widely expected to take over as anchor of “Evening News.”

Couric has reportedly met with ABC News President Ben Sherwood to talk about the possibility of her joining the network. Couric is receiving advice from her former boss at NBC, Jeff Zucker, the story says.

A spokesman for ABC declined to comment for the story.


  1. oh no please ABC..don’t bring Katie Couric to the network! It’s pretty much the only network I watch, especially for news, and can’t bare the thought of having to watch her..please, please, please…I’m begging you!

  2. If she’s talking to her X Boss at NBC!! you know she is not right for ABC!!! look what has happened to NBC over the last 15 years in the CELLER!! let her find something else PLEASE!!

  3. She is very talented and does great interviews. She would be great at ABC, CNN or NBC.

  4. Katie Couric would be a great addition to ABC News. She is a “class act” and has the talent and experience to be a star with ABC.

  5. Add Katie to “The View.” Perfect place for her.

  6. Thanks for the excellent contribution to the discussion.
